LA CROSSE (WKBT) -- Teens from all over the Midwest are getting their tech on. The Seven Rivers Regional robotics competition began on Friday and one Arcadia High School junior is encouraging more girls to join science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs. 

The fans inside the La Crosse Center aren’t here for a sporting event. The players on the field are straight out of the Terminator.
